Image is not everything. That's a lesson the world's best tennis player has learned the hard way. On the slick grass rectangle that is Wimbledon's storied center court--a mystical place where he feared even to tread for three years--he learned in 1987 that you can smash flashy, Kevlar-powered rocket shots...
